Ordered bed for my son, good looking bed but he discovered that the rails were defective & did not support the mattress I ordered for him from Overstock He had to sleep on floor until his neighbor helped him build planks to support the mattress Not happy
The shipping was quick, which I loved! I decided to put the bed together myself, relatively easy until I got to the support legs. The bed looks beautiful once assembled. After I assembled the bed my boyfriend and I laid on the bed and all the support legs gave out after 5 mins and we are not overweight! I love this bed but my happiness was short lived! I asked for replacement parts but I'm sure I will run into the same problem with the support legs.
So I ordered even though I read all the reviews. I guess I just wanted to be cheap and that's what I paid for. It's an OKAY bed. Looks just like the picture but the parts are really cheap. The upholster are so cheap that one broke as I tried to take it off. Will be needing to buy more support. I weigh 110 pounds so it might last me.. Don't know about anyone over 200 pounds. Do I recommend.. Yes but not for anyone that has a partner.
In spite of the negative reviews, I bought this bed about 2 weeks ago and I really like it. No creaking and no moving slats. That said, we have a box spring under our mattress which we already had from our previous bed. So I don't know what's it like without. But the headboard is really nice and comfortable. Not a lot of room for under the bed storage but I hate clutter so that's not a problem for me. There are picky people and that's what I went with, when deciding to buy this bed. Plus I have a box spring. I'm very happy!
I was not sure what to expect when i ordered this because pictures on the web site always look great. When I unpacked the boxes I was extremely surprised and very happy it looked the same as the picture on the web site and matched the item description given. I was able to put it together the frame and headboard with instructions in about 35 minutes. It looks great and very happy with my purchase.
I read the reviews and the many problems with the wooden planks that "support" the bed, but still decided to buy it because it said the problem was solved and the wood has now been replaced with metal pieces. That is not the case!! I have had the bed up for less than a week and 2 of the thin cheap boards are broken along with one of the metal legs that came defective out of the box. I am extremely unhappy and hope to be contacted to rectify this issue.
The headboard is flimsy. The two wooden stick connecting the headboard to the remaining structure and not very strong. Seems can break if too much pressure applied. Also the hexagons socket screw that are used for building are not good quality either. The allen wrench being provided does not fit well in the screws. Also the structure to hold the mattress is made up of plastic elements. So doesn't seem too strong.
I read reviews about the bed slats constantly breaking so I was hesitant to make the purchase. My husband put the bed together so I can't comment on the difficulty of it, but he's pretty handy and has put together a ton of Ikea furniture. We use a box spring with the bed and have not had any issues with the slats breaking. It feels sturdy and looks so chic with our white linens.
